    We had a little get together Saturday night.  I cooked up a variety of stuff... a butt, a bottom round beef roast, some SPAM, a couple loaves of bread, and this 8+lbs of chicken quarters.


    I got these for $0.50 per lb.


    I did not brine this time.  Just hit it with some JB's Fatboy Sweet Rub.  Bagged it up and let it set in the refridgerator for about 15 hours.



    It was cold out Saturday morning when I got started.  I tried a new charcoal this time.  I liked it.  It created a lot of ash, but it burned hot and lasted all day.  So I'll give this one a thumbs up.


    Had to get bundled up for this one.


    Used the Minion Method with a mix of Apple and Cherry Chunks.


    Here's several hours into the smoke when I put the chicken on.  The bottom rack is full of chiken too.


    And finally it's dinner time.


    Here's a link to the butt thread.


    Here's the roast beef along with the SPAM

    I seem to remember a jersey or Tshirt from that exchange plus a bunch of other good stuff
  10. Damn that chicky looks good! I've tried the Fat Boy honey BBQ sauce it was really good haven't tried out any of their rubs yet. Checked out the butt and the roast beef too. Don't think it was the alcohol. Nice work!

    I'm up for it.  Problem is, I'm having a little trouble locating that stuff now.  I don't know if the store is discontinuing it of what.  I like the other stuff better.  But the sweet is ok. 
    Yeah, Mark got a bunch of cool stuff.  I got some orange oil rag.

    Just kidding. 

    Thanks Mark.  Their all purpose rub is good.  I can't find it anymore.  All I can find is the sweet rub.  I think the company is in Nebraska.  Maybe you have a better selection of the stuff.

    Thanks Rob.  You southern boys are just soft. 

    Thanks Al.  You've come a long way since those days of fighting with pastrami.  Glad you see you're paying it forward and helping others.
